's gone public between the daughters of former vice president dick cheney, mary cheney who's there on the right is gay. she took to facebook to criticize her sister liz's stance on gay marriage and all of this while liz is in the middle of a tough senate campaign. now, for the first time, on camera, dick cheney himself is taking sides. >> we, you know, we're surprised when there was an attack launched against liz on facebook and wished it hadn't happened and it's always been dealt with within the context of the family and, frankly, that's our preference. >> cheney called the rift a difficult thing for his family and when the interviewer tried to press him further on that subject he said, do not waste your time. it's hard because it is a personal family feud but it is a subject that is so much in the headlines for this country right now. >> yeah. in the context of a political campaign so now it's become sort of fair game. >>> we know kids can be cruel but here's an example of a boy trying to change that. you will love christian, a second grader from york, pennsylvania. he fe
israel of poisoning him, which israel for its part denies. >>> dick cheney weighing in now on the conflict between his daughters over same-sex marriage. >> we're surprised when there was an attack launched against liz on facebook. and wished it hadn't happened. it's always been dealt with within the context of the family and frankly that's our preferences. >>> you might recall the conflict began a few weeks ago when liz who was running for senate in wyoming said she supported traditional marriage, despite long contending she supported her sister mary's same-sex relationship. >>> the capital christmas tree is sunshining bright in washington. the tree was lit for the first time last night. it is decorated with 5,000 handmade ornaments. it's an 88-foot tree, the second tallest ever at the capital. >> beautiful. >> you've seen it in person. it must be breathtaking. >> my drive when i was in washington every morning and evening, i'd drive right past it, especially when i was working in the capital. >> it's one of the few times you live in washington when you take a moment to go,
it just amounts to an acknowledgment of weakness. dick cheney would argue that if you threw them a scalp, the pack of wolves will get hungrier for another scalp." i am sure that that is the debate taking place in obama's mind right now, which is -- look , is this actually resolving anything? or is it simply acknowledging that we failed and emboldening the opposition? beyond the that politics, though, probably another thing that obama is thinking about that is the right thing to think about is the substance. ever mind politics, how did this happen? this was his signature domestic achievement. it was not a surprise, like hurricane katrina. it was a long planned event and the rollout was disastrous. something went wrong and someone is responsible for that. is in theat someone west wing, deep in the bowels of health and human services, whether it is secretary sebelius, i do not understand the problems well enough to know. someone is accountable, i would say, ultimately, and that in my view the president has to bear some of that accountability. he came with a lack of administrative experience
a continuation of the bush-cheney counterterrorism apparatus. i imagine dick cheney fly fishing on his boat somewhere in wyoming, you know, sort of having a good chuckle and saying, you know, thank god obama was president because the next time we're in power, we're going to be able to continue doing this stuff. >> host: jeremy scahill, how large is the drone program in the u.s. right now? >> guest: well, we have very little information about it. let's remember that for almost the entire first term that president obama was in office, he never publicly mentioned the drones except on a google plus hangout in response to a question that a young person had asked him. no u.s. officials would ever publicly own that the u.s. even had a drone program. an american citizen was killed in a drone strike, this guy anwar al-awlaki who was from the united states and went to yemen and was making these youtube videos, they killed him in 2011. 600 days later president obama gives a speech where he owns the fact that the u.s. is doing this. there are secret bases in saudi arabia, oman, in east africa. my under

[laughter] as i say, actually he liked it too. what matters, manners and habits, curiosities and conundrums, social and ethical. is a doctor ever permitted to kill a patient willing to die? why in the age of feminism do we with still use the phrase women and children? i have a column on that, and i seem to be the only person in the country disturbed by its continued use. and i'm not even a feminist. [laughter] how many lies can one tell, is one allowed to tell to advance stem cell research, something also i write about in the book and in which i talk about what president bush did in elevating the national debate on bioethics in a way that has never been done in american history and for which history will be very grateful as will our progeny. what matters, the paradox in which the great man asks why with so many habitable planets out there, why in god's name have we never heard a word from a single one of those civilizations? these are the things that most engage me. they give me pause, pleasure and wonder. they make me grateful for the gift of
